Don't start chatting her up--she won't respond. Not because she's busy hurrying to save the lives of the crew of a doomed space mission, but because she's made out of silicone.All Steve Scott's Behance profile says is, this is a "project of mine to see how closely I could imitate life." Scott is an artist and illustrator, but also a portrait sculptor, a model/prop maker, creature FX creator and mould maker. The silicone used to make Sigourney come to life is ... Read More

Now while I am still way too young to be reminiscing on my teenage years, this film almost made me long for the frivolous days of my youth (can I still say that if I am only 21?). Well, almost. Apart from my left over teen angst that has seeped into early twenties angst, TEENAGE is a fascinating look at the creation and evolution of the 'teenager'. Don't be fooled by the black and white film stills, this documentary is a vibrant and heartfelt love letter to ... Read More

While there's no denying Fiona Apple's other worldly musical skills, an upcoming project will have the singer trading her vocal and songwriting abilities for real super powers in the new French show, H-Man.

The show was created from the mind of Joseph Cahill, the same guy who directed Apple's music video for "Every Single ... Read More

Female friendships are these amazing, complicated, weird and wonderful things that heavily influence most of our lives and yet are so often misrepresented (if presented at all) in popular media. It's not always sleepovers and mimosas; friendships are challenging, and as we grow up and change, so do our relationships. An honest look at these relationships arrives in the new show Doll & Em.
Real life friends Emily Mortimer and Dolly Wells have teamed up to ... Read More
